I first heard Spanish from my dad who's Colombian, so my lessons focus on communication via dynamic task-based activities! First you discover grammar functions & the meaning of vocab through simple comprehension activities. Then we practice these new items through conversation questions or communication activities that simulate real-life tasks like ordering food, asking for directions, or describing a person. This creates a fun atmosphere for learning and gives students ample opportunities to speak! I also like to use multimedia like videos, pictures and powerpoints to make lessons more interactive, especially online lessons! For beginners, I use the book Spanish Demystified or Easy Spanish Step by Step as a learning resource and to provide grammar homework.

Besides speaking, my lessons also cover the other aspects of a language: Reading, writing and listening comprehension. I target those skills with activities such as short readings & writing assignments for homework, and themed ...

About Christy
I was exposed to Spanish throughout my childhood from my dad who is from Colombia, and from my great Spanish teachers. After minoring in it at college, I perfected my fluency from living in Spain for 2 years and studying it for 18 years! My adventures with the language led me to pursue an MA in Spanish. I am currently a PhD student in Spanish Literature and work as a university instructor for Spanish conversation. I've also been tutoring individual and small groups of all levels for the past 5 years - Young children, high schoolers, college students, and adult learners! I enjoy leading creative, interactive lessons that are different for each student I work with. My students have gone on to pursue bilingual positions, live in South America, or improve their performance in Spanish class by 2+ letter grades! I truly enjoy the work I do in
helping others learn an important new skill.

Because I became fluent while immersed in the language, I believe language learning comes from speaking and communicating! So, my lessons focus mainly on speaking. I create interactive activities that help students learn speaking skills like making comparisons or ordering food. I also make sure to cover other aspects of the language (grammar, listening comprehension, reading, and writing) through explanations, in-class activities and homework. But, every lesson I teach is different! I tailor them to each student according to level, goals, pace, and learning style. And I make sure to get feedback from students at the end of each lesson to help plan future lessons. Overall, I am a resourceful, enthusiastic, attentive and creative tutor. I strive to challenge students while creating a comfortable and fun learning environment. Students of any level are welcome!

I look forward to possibly working with you... ¡Hasta pronto!

I appreciate her willingness to accommodate me and my schedule and, although I have only had 1 lesson so far, can feel that I am already growing in knowledge and confidence. I really like that she gives me assignments I can work on between lessons so that I can make the most of my lesson time with her.

I would be able to help you develop your Spanish language skills in the areas of reading comprehension, writing, grammar, listening and speaking.

About Frank
I am from Peru, which is where I started my career in teaching. For nearly five years I taught Spanish as a Second Language to American young adults who were preparing to serve Spanish-speaking missions in South America.

Additionally, I was a Spanish editor. Through producing and editing countless Spanish magazines, pamphlets, articles, interviews, and ads, I developed great attention to detail and excelled in the correct and elegant use of the Spanish language. I also worked as an Advertising Manager and Marketing Manager for several educational institutions.

Lately, I have worked as a Spanish Instructor for Language Bird in Los Angeles. During that time, I taught students and career professionals from the basic, intermediate and advanced levels of Spanish. Currently, I'm working as a Spanish Instructor at Ross Stores Distribution
Center, and as a Latin American Culture and Spanish Instructor for the U.S. Air Force.

I am an instructor who is professional, flexible, easy-going, patient, friendly, and very interested in my students' progress.

I look forward to meeting you.

I have over 5 years of experience tutoring/teaching Spanish. I specialize in beginner/intermediate/advanced grammar and speaking skills. All ages welcome. Lessons will be customized to whatever your individual goals/needs may be! I was part of a Spanish immersion program and speak the language fluently. Have traveled to many Spanish speaking countries and am a Spanish teacher in New York City. Looking forward to working with you!

About Kat
I am a professional singer, songwriter, actor, and teacher. I graduated from Coastal Carolina University with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre (with a minor in Spanish)! Originally from North Carolina, I moved to New York City in order to pursue my dream of being an actress! Upon my arrival in New York, I quickly found that I also have an incredible passion for songwriting and teaching. Currently, I am pursuing a career in music and working as a teacher.

If you choose to study voice with me, you can expect to improve your technique weekly using a variety of vocal warm ups and songs. Because every person's voice is just as unique as they are, we will work through your individual strengths and opportunities for growth as well as work towards building up your repertoire - all while helping you gain more and more confidence in you
r vocal abilities!

If you are interested in studying acting with me, you can expect to read lots of plays/musicals, as well as work through a slew of monologues! We can work on material that I find for you or we can work through whatever you need to prepare for your next audition! I can help you find compelling objectives and beats and help bring your character to life!

In my Spanish lessons, you can expect to work through grammar, speaking, reading, and writing. I learned Spanish through an immersive academic program (K-12) and then I minored in Spanish in college so I not only have an understanding of the language from an academic standpoint but I also have been speaking Spanish for nearly the entirety of my life! I have worked with beginner Spanish speakers to native Spanish speakers helping with grammar and writing skills. We will work together to build up your confidence in speaking and understanding Spanish and before you know it, we'll be able to have our lessons fully in Spanish!

I am looking forward to meeting you and working with you soon!!

I will teach you the most important part of the language so that you can start speaking right away. There are certain words that we use 80 percent of the time. Wouldn’t you want to learn these words first? If your looking for someone who’s going to grill you on speaking with a perfect accent that’s not me. What I want is for my students to be able to enter into a conversation and have a true conversation with a native speaker. A conversation that had they not learned the essentials to the language, they would’ve never been able to have had before. I am not going to teach you what words need an accent mark, when to use the subjunctive, etc. that stuff is still confusing to me. I want you to become an effective Spanish communicator plain and simple. That is my goal.

About Scott
Hey! My name is Scotty and I want to help you to have fun learning Spanish. Spanish is really fun and easy to learn if you learn it the right way. I’ll guide you into becoming an effective Spanish communicator. My goal is for you to feel comfortable engaging in conversations with Spanish speakers. I am not a native Spanish so I had to begin the journey just like you. I am here to guide you and make it fun.
